It is down to the Top 10 on “American Idol.”
“Extra’s” Tanika Ray spoke with judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie right after the live show. Katy said she is focused on the show, admitting she is not quite in the wedding-planning mind frame just yet. She said, “Oh, my God. I'm not even in the mode. I'm just worried about my Top 10 right now.”
Lionel is ready to celebrate Katy and fiancé Orlando Bloom, saying, “No matter what, I'm there.”
When Tanika joked that he invited himself, Katy commented, “Then they'll have to sing for free.” After Lionel agreed, Luke had the perfect song choice, saying, “'Endless Love.' I'll be Diana. Lionel's Lionel. 'Endless Love,' baby.”
Some contestants ended their run on “American Idol,” with the judges each getting one save. Katy used hers on 17-year-old Alyssa Raghu, who sang her hit, “The One That Got Away.” She pointed out, “You saw me almost break down into tears delivering the last person to the Top 10. Alyssa, I'm a wreck. I literally need to go home and take a three-hour nap.”
The judges told "Extra" they love the energy of the live shows, with Luke emphasizing, “It's like... flip the switch. No turning back now, it’s spontaneity at its finest.”
Katy added, “There is no editing," while Lionel revealed, “The joke is, with us, I have to remind Luke before we go to stage, ‘Luke, we’re live, Katy, we’re live.’”
"American Idol" airs Sunday nights on ABC.
